Nagliliwaliw nang iyong tinawag
Sa sanlibutang mandaraya
Maganda sa tingin, nakatago’y sumpa
Sa mga taong masasama
Nang makasumpong ng kabutihan
Sinuri ko’t pinag-aralan
Ikaw na nga ba ‘yan? Ikaw na nga ba ‘yan?
Kristo Hesus ng katotohanan
‘di natutunan kaninoman
(‘di sa mga bulaan)
Kundi sa ‘Yo, sa ‘Yo lamang
O Dios ng katotohanan
Utang ko sa ‘Yo ang aking buhay
Nais ko ngayo’y magtagumpay
Sa hinihingi Mong kasakdalan
Salamat sa Iyo, o Dios ng katotohanan
Tinanggap ko sa aking puso
Itong aral Mo at bautismo
‘di kayang tibagin ng kahit sino
Repeat pre-chorus and chorus
Dios ng katotohanan
Music Director Darrell Joseph Villanueva describes his song, “Dios Ng Katotohanan”, as the overwhelming emotion a person feels upon hearing the truth about God’s teachings for the first time. He also mentioned that it is an expression of gratitude for receiving God’s grace after that.
Being a professional in his craft, Darrell sees challenges in composing a praise song. An important note is how one can create an expression of faith through a song that anyone can relate to.
That’s what he imposed on himself when he decided to join ASOP and was able to compose an alt-rock anthem of giving praise to the God of Truth.
A suitable discovery by the name of Niña Espinosa will surely be wowed at in ASOP Year 8 Grand Finals Night for the interpretation of Darrell’s qualifying entry.
